Let the mung beans be completely cooked. After draining your well-cooked mung beans with a colander, put it aside and grab your onions.

Cut the onions into small cubes. Put a pan on heat. Pour 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil then add the onion and fry it until it becomes soft. Grate the garlic cloves and add it to the pan. Don’t forget to fry the cloves only for about 1 minute otherwise it will burn. Season your mixture and add turmeric powder, pepper and salt.
